Now you can make administrative requests at

Setting this up is a little clumsy, but what I did was to make a team
called "admin" and a repo called "admin" under the boost-lib
organization, and assigned the repo to the team. The team (right now,
and totally subject to adjustment) is Daniel Pfeifer, Beman Dawes, Eric
Niebler, and me. We're also on the special "owners" team for the
boost-lib org. According to GitHub docs, the team will receive email
for every issue opened on that tracker.
